Abstract

It is often claimed that ‘the only way that students ever acquire functional language ability, at least at advanced levels, is during study abroad’ (Miller & Ginsberg, 1995: 393). Indeed the intuitively positive effect of study abroad on second language acquisition has attracted the attention of scholars involved in language education (e.g. Barron, 2003; Brecht & Davidson, 1992; Churchill, 2003c; DeKeyser, 1986, 1990; DuFon, 1998, 2000a, 2000b, 2003; Freed, 1990b, 1995b; Ginsberg et al., 1992; Makino, 1995; Pellegrino, 1998; Siegal, 1995a, 1995b, 1996; Spada, 1985, 1986; Wilkinson, 1995, 1998b, 2002; Yamamoto, 1995), particularly because of the social interactions that occur outside the classroom. Recently, researchers have conducted various types of research to investigate exactly what, in these outside-of-the-classroom situations, the participants are experiencing (e.g. Cook, this volume; Churchill, 2003c; DuFon, 1998, 2000a, 2000b, 2003, this volume; Hassall, this volume; Iino, 1993, 1996; Knight & Schmidt-Rinehart, 2002; McMeekin, this volume; Siegal, 1995a, 1995b, 1996; Wilkinson, 1995, 1998b, 2002).1
